General

  • Principal Ritchie's Friday Food for Thought: With just six more Mondays remaining in the school year, now is the time to reflect on accomplishments and challenges from the year, and to recognize that we are all in the fortunate position to address any lingering challenges with strategies and direction. For example, I still need to write my graduation speech but am taking it on in sections so that the task does not feel overwhelming. Consider what you still need to accomplish this year, develop a road map that allows you to pursue those goals without feeling rushed, and take time to celebrate your efforts as we move closer to that 2018 finish line together. 
  • AUSD SUMMER SCHOOL AUSD Summer School is currently enrolling students. This 4-week, free program will be held from June 25 - July 20 with a holiday taken on July 4. The program will be held at Cornell Elementary School. The courses being offered are English and History. Students who have failed an English or History class and need to make up those credits in order to graduate will be given priority enrollment. Students who have received a D in English or History may also request an opportunity to improve their grade in summer school, but enrollment to these students will be given on a first-come, first-served basis based on space in the program. Registration forms are now available in the counseling office. The deadline to register for AUSD Summer School is Friday, May 4 or before.  If you need to make up credits for English or History classes that you've earned a D or F in, please turn in your registration forms by May 4 or before. Early registration is encouraged as changes can me made up to the day Summer School begins.  Enrollment space is limited.  Forms are in the counseling office.
